The New York Times
December 10, 1922


Run Down Crossing Street With Her Granddaughter — Motor Truck Crushes Boy to Death.

A boy and an aged woman were killed in automobile accidents yesterday.  Mrs. Sarah Miller, 65 years old, of 848 East 167th Street, the Bronx, was killed by a bus loaded with thirty passengers at Prospect Avenue and 167th Street shortly after 10 o'clock last night.  She was crossing the street with her granddaughter, Lillian Nudelman of the same address, and became confused when she discovered the bus was less than ten feet away.

Benjamin Minkoff, the owner and operator of the bus, told the police that the woman ran in the path of the vehicle as he tried to swerve to the side to avoid her.  One of the forward wheels of the vehicle passed over her and she was dead when Policeman Sweeney and the chauffeur carried her to a drug store a block away.  Minkoff was locked up in the Simpson Street Station on a technical charge of homicide.

Thomas Mallin, 5 years old, of 2,556 Eighth Avenue, was killed when he ran from behind an elevated pillar in front of a motor truck at Eighth Avenue and 136th Street shortly after 8 P. M.  Angelo Pennisi, 35 years old, the chauffeur, of 35 West Ninety-eighth Street, was arrested by Policeman Thomas Kennedy and locked up in the West 135th Street Station on a technical homicide charge.
